Sedum spectabile 'Neon'
- Tidy mounds of bright green foliage
- Bright pink flower heads appear in summer through autumn
- A very good choice for mass-planting in tough conditions
Gorgeous gray-green foliage and bright pink flowers that are extremely vibrant. When planted in masses the color intensifies. The leaves are thick and succulent, which helps it adapt to a wide range of soil conditions and drought tolerance once established in the landscape. An improved offspring of Sedum 'Brilliant', but more compact and with bigger, brighter flowers. This group of upright Sedums is also sometimes known as Hylotelephium.

Homeowner Growing Tips: Grow in full sun, or partial shade in hot southern regions, in well-drained soil. Does well in sandy or gravelly soils; tolerates poor fertility. Cut back by half in June, to prevent flopping apart later in summer. Spent flowers may be left on through winter to provide interest; cut down in spring when new growth appears. Divide every 3-4 years in spring, for best flowering.
